Hi, my name is Ash and I’m the TA for Ohio Plants!

I’m a PhD student in the department of Evolution, Ecology, and Organismal Biology where I research plant systematics and biogeography. I did my undergraduate degree in Botany at Oregon State University, and my main area of botanical expertise is the Cascadia bioregion. When I’m not teaching, you can find me at The Museum of Biological Diversity over on West Campus, or on Instagram where my handle is @season.of.sticks (follow me for more botany content!). This is my first time teaching Ohio Plants and I can’t wait to share the beauty of our flora with all of you.
